I was curious if anyone was using a Canadiano pour over brewer (link to site here) and their thoughts on it? The concept seems questionable--such as do you really want the flavor from previous cups entering a fresh cup--but I wanted to check and see if anyone had experience with it they were willing to share?

It is the first time I saw this, uh, no it will not be part of my coffee setup.

The wood imparts a taste of it's own and the coffee oils will soak into the wood and I can't see that as a good thing.

Everyone is trying to make a better mouse trap and here, in my personal view, they missed the boat.

I'm not sure whether to think this thing is for real or if it's a satirical website, poking fun at the self-seriousness of certain parts of coffee culture. If the latter, then it's hilarious.

The concept is not a whole lot different than "seasoning" a macchinetta. But I imagine the reaction between coffee oils and wood is a lot different than with aluminum. Looking at historical kitchen implements though, there are a lot of hardwood devices that came into contact with strong flavoured things and didn't necessarily make things taste bad.

It looks like the main line (not the RAW) is finished with an oil coating and can be refinished as needed with their "proprietary" oil (I'm guessing mineral oil??), so I doubt that there's going to be huge issues. At first I thought it was gimmicky and stupid, then I remembered I've got a couple of Japanese lacquered wood coffee cups that are pleasant to drink from, and if you've ever drunk sake from a real cypress "masu" (square wooden cup), you can appreciate how wood can enhance flavours.

But at $50 I'll probably just stick with my $2 plastic dripper...
